Change of Plea, Sentencing in District Court

A change of plea hearing and subsequent sentencing was held Tuesday in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

38-year-old Dawn Trevino pleaded “guilty” to the charges of Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance, and Delivery of a Controlled Substance-Methamphetamine. The charges stem from her role in a statewide methamphetamine distribution ring where she obtained and sold the drug in the Sheridan area between December of 2015 and September of 2016. Prior to sentencing, Deputy County and Prosecuting Attorney for the State, Darci Phillips said that Trevino had served time in prison before and that she was involved in distributing quite a bit of methamphetamine in the area prior to her arrest.

As part of an investigation by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, Trevino was arrested when she attempted to deliver and sell methamphetamine to a confidential informant. District Court Judge John Fenn accepted the terms of the plea agreement and sentenced Trevino to 3-to-5 years for each count, to run consecutive to each other. Fenn ordered her to pay $545 in various fines and court fees and imposed a fee of $1,692.50 for the costs incurred by the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office to have Trevino extradited to Sheridan from Texas. Trevino received 222 days credit for time served.
